Neuropathy refers to issues involving nerve signaling and transmission of information to and from the brain. Peripheral neuropathy is the most commonly occurring form of neuropathy, where the nerves branching off from the spinal cord develop problems transmitting signals, particularly in the arms and legs.
If your nerves are not functioning properly, it can cause all kinds of issues throughout the body, preventing the brain from receiving the sensory information it needs and causing sensations of numbness, tingling, or pins-and-needles. This can lead to loss of control over the muscles and other body functions from the spinal cord.
PRP Therapy for Neuropathy
Doctors have traditionally prescribed medication to reduce the symptoms of neuropathy, no matter the cause. However, painkillers and topical treatments do nothing to address the root of the problem. When dealing with the pain and numbness that come with neuropathy, it is important to tackle the source of the issue so that your condition does not worsen.
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a viable treatment option for neuropathy that gets to the root of the issue for effective, lasting relief. If your neuropathy is preventing nerves from transmitting proper signals due to tissue damage, PRP therapy may be a solution for you.
What is PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that utilizes the healing properties already present in your own body for treatment and relief. It works by extracting a small sample of your blood and spinning it through a centrifuge – a process that separates and concentrates the healing platelets from the other components in your blood.
This results in a rich, golden solution full of healing qualities, including cytokines, growth factors, and proteins, that are injected directly into your area of need. Upon injection, the healing properties and growth factors pool to the area of damaged tissues that are causing your neuropathy and get to work repairing the damage and providing rapid relief.
Many patients have reported immediate relief directly after treatment. Due to PRP therapy’s nature, there is little to no risk of side effects and no downtime required after treatment, allowing you to continue with your day directly after the injection.
